Health benefits of macadamia nuts

  • Macadamia nuts have a sweet taste and are a rich source of energy. 100 g of nuts provide about 718 calorie/100 g, which is one of the highest calorific values among nuts.
  • Macadamias are packed with numerous health-benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimum health and wellness.
  • 100 g of macadamia provides 8.6 g or 23% of daily-recommended levels of dietary fiber. Macadamias are a very good source of phytosterols such as ß-sitosterol.Macadamias have no cholesterol.
  • Macadamias are a rich source of mono-unsaturated fatty (MUF) like oleic acid (18:1) and palmitoleic acids (16:1). Studies suggest that MUF fats in the diet help lower total as well as LDL (bad) cholesterol and increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels in the blood.
  • Macadamias are an excellent source of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese and zinc. 100 g nuts provide 3.6 µg of selenium. Selenium is a cardio-protective micro-mineral and an important anti-oxidant cofactor for glutathione peroxidase enzyme.
  • Macadamias are also rich in many important B-complex vitamins that are vital for metabolic functions. 100 g of nuts provide 15% of niacin, 21% of pyridoxine (vitamin B 6), 100% of thiamin, and 12% of riboflavin.
  • Macadamias contain small amounts of vitamin A, and vitamin E. Both these fat-soluble vitamins possess potent anti-oxidant activities, which serve to protect cell membranes and DNA damage from harmful oxygen-free radicals.
